Databroker and COMPUTD join forces to bring machine-learning algorithms to the masses

By Valentina Ponomariova | Dec 19, 2019



With December in full swing, the Databroker team is hard at work! As well as putting the finishing touches to our marketplace, we are also onboarding new partners to further strengthen our offering. We recently teamed up with Dutch data science company COMPUTD, whose state-of-the-art data enrichment and analytics solutions can bring real value to both buyers and sellers on the Databroker marketplace.

Once businesses have found a way to collect or source the data they need, the next challenge is to organise it, structure it and extract the intelligence locked within. We know that data science holds the key, but extracting valuable insights can still be difficult because of the complex and time-consuming data analytics processes needed.

This is where COMPUTD comes in. Based in the Netherlands, COMPUTD’s mission is to make machine-learning solutions accessible and widely available for everyone. A branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning systems and tools can learn from large quantities of data, identify patterns and deliver useful results with little human interaction.  

Solutions to extract intelligence and create value

Through the partnership, COMPUTD will offer a variety of services that perfectly complement Databroker’s mission of bringing data buyers and sellers together and ensuring secure and easy exchange of data.

Some of these include:

  • Pre-trained machine learning algorithms as a service for quick and easy data analytics 

    COMPUTD offer generic machine learning algorithms – pre-trained on a large benchmark dataset to tackle similar data analytics problems. By sending datasets through the Databroker-enabled API (Application Interface), the algorithms will provide immediate analyses in return, saving valuable time and resources compared to using models that need to be trained from scratch.

    Algorithms include sentiment analysis, word-embeddings and spam/ham classifications. 

  • Technical partnerships with individual data sellers

    COMPUTD’s expert data scientists can offer data sellers tailor-made solutions for cleaning, enriching and structuring their data, making it much more marketable and valuable than raw data.

    This is particularly interesting for companies that hope to develop robust revenue streams by selling data, and build a solid portfolio of satisfied clients thanks to the quality of their data.

Spreading the Databroker message

COMPUTD co-founder and data scientist Marcell Ignéczi, is excited about the partnership, which will be mutually beneficial to both Databroker and COMPUTD customers: “We are happy to raise awareness about Databroker amongst our clients, from two different perspectives: buying data when needed for one of our clients, and advising on how they can monetise non-business critical data.”

Ignéczi went on to say: “Databroker has a true potential as a platform to further the ubiquity of cooperation with data, increasing the efficiency of business processes and the potential for data science and AI. As COMPUTD, we are extremely interested in seeing how [Databroker] will assist the shift towards digitalisation in the world!”

Vincent Bultot, DataMatch Advisor at Databroker also sees mutual benefits in the partnership: “By onboarding COMPUTD on the platform, Databroker will pilot its Data eXchange Controller for peer-to-peer API sharing using COMPUTD algorithms, and promote COMPUTD AI services to other data providers that want to enrich their data sets.”
